I feel very stupid about this, I am not a UFO buff.

At around 10:30 last night at my work place which is located as you leaveSuperior going east towards Ashland WI, I was outside in the large field looking at the first clear night of stars in a long time. I have to admit that I was kind of wondering if I would see something strange in the sky.

Almost directly above my head I saw three dim, but clear lights, (they appeared to be stars, solid white) moving across the sky in a triangle pattern.

They did not move in a totally even pace but constantly normalized themselves in what appeared sort of like a stuttering action so that they kept in a basic triangle formation. They continued moving in the same direction for approximately one minute and covered about half of the night sky or a little less. After the minute or so the first one in formation just kind of shrunk and pinched out of sight and the other two did the same once they reached the point in the sky where the other one had pinched out. The pattern they had been moving in was one of the three leading the other two which took up flanking positions in the rear. It was like a triangle being led by one of its points.

Two things keep me looking at the skies Ever since fourteen or so I have kind of wondered if I would see something in the sky strange because my friend and I had seen a star, solid white, move across half the sky over about two minutes and then just all of a sudden without stopping it just changed directions and went back the other way across the whole sky. He and I both witnessed this and we talked about the details again recently.

I believe it was that same year, 14, (i am 24 now) when I had a dream that there was one of those aliens that you always see in movies like 'fire in the sky'. I had been sleeping in the basement while the rest of my family slept on the second story of our house. The way the dream went was very strange. I remember kids were playing with a ball of some sort and then a door to my left opened and one of those aliens was behind it. The strange thing is that the dream faded away and I was in my basement and one of those things was just standing in the dingy doorway to my basement at the foot of the stairs. I did not believe I was dreaming at this point. I tried to hold myself up from my bed, and resolved that I was going to fight this thing. Then it just went black. I woke up on my bed with my legs hanging off and my blanket on the ground. I ran up the stairs and I noticed that the side door lock which went directly to the basement was broken and hanging upside down on the door. I didn't sleep for a couple weeks after that except sparingly in an armchair.
